Mercury in Sagittarius: The Future Looks Bright

Keen Category: Astrology Advice

Illustrated constellation of Sagittarius with planet Mercury in background with astrological symbol

The planet Mercury rules over communication and wherever it is in the zodiac, this affects the way we send out messages and the manner in which we interpret signals from everyone around us. This is the planet that controls our five senses, the way we respond to the stimulation around us and the methods we choose to express what we have taken in.

When Mercury is in the zodiac sign of Sagittarius, our sense of adventure is stoked. Sagittarius is the zodiac sign of the seeker, the adventurer. Sagittarius sets out to get things done and believes in the ability to accomplish the task at hand. The zodiac also lightens up with Sagittarius and embraces frivolity as a way to explore and explain life after the tense and serious sign of Scorpio. The lighthearted break is short however, as the archer is followed by rigid and orderly Capricorn, bent on codifying all of the experiences that Sagittarius digs up along its path of merriment. There is an inherent optimism about things in your life when a planet is occupying Sagittarius, but this area of interest depends on your zodiac sign. Read below for your sign to see where to plant your seeds of positive thinking.

Aries March 21 – April 19

You are upbeat about travelling to an interesting destination. Take a camera and really get into documenting your trip. Of course, a passionate fling could occur that you might want to continue when you get back home. How will you survive on email and postcards after such perfect intimacy? If there is a language barrier it will only make the loving that much hotter between you two.

Taurus April 20 – May 20

You have a growing confidence in your ability to satisfy your partner, no matter how long you two have been together. Look for validation from him as he confirms that you have taken his eyes off of any other potential prize. Bask in the glow and make his faith in you a foundation on which you can affirm your own faith in yourself.

Gemini May 21 – June 21

You have optimism in a business partnership. A non-romantic relationship that was recently established can be seen to be paying dividends soon. This will benefit your confidence in all one-on-one relationships and you could stand to ramp up the flirtations with that guy on whom you have been crushing. You can look for plenty for which to be thankful as Mercury visits Sagittarius.

Cancer June 22 – July 22

It is a great time to get some paperwork done, perhaps getting a jump-start on end-of-the-year tasks like tax preparation and domestic organization. Amidst the clutter of cleaning your desk or closets, Mercury in Sagittarius will give you a sense of order in your life and may remind you of a certain romantic opportunity that is still available. Make your move.

Leo July 23 – August 22

Things are looking great as you flirt with a member of a different generation. While Mercury breezes through Sagittarius you are either playing lusty mentor to a young buck eager to learn or looking like the prettiest young thing to an older man whose passion burns with experience. When you are not in the throes of physical affection, you will notice some creative success based on a new self-confidence.

Virgo August 23 – September 22

Getting a space of your own will boost your optimism moving toward the holidays. Be it a new office, house, apartment, study space, art studio or corner of the garage to chill on an old couch, having a place to call your very own recharges your batteries. It allows you a place to be yourself and remind you of just how great being you is.

Libra September 23 – October 22

Have you been a lot happier with the small circle of friends? Perhaps the one that was giving you trouble has lightened up or left and you have a new appreciation of the chemistry when you all get together minus "Ms Headache." On the agenda is a late November romp with a cute catch organized as a semi-blind date by a good friend.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

You can be happy about clearing the air with a partner or possible love interest. To find out that you two actually agree on some sensitive matters is a big blessing on the budding affection between you two. Find time to let him know how important these seemingly minor things are. When you two can appreciate that seeing things eye-to-eye is the glue that will keep you together, love itself can blossom.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21

Mercury in your sign will make your discussions with important people go in your favor as you command an audience and control the pace of the discussion. Finding a possible partner in the crowd will be simple but you might be attracting the attention of a guy or two whom you care little about. Don't let the drips get in the way of your catch.

Capricorn December 22 – January 19

A great opportunity for a psychological breakthrough occurs while Mercury moves through Sagittarius on its way toward your sign. Keep your promises, be punctual and opportunities for success will loom large. Communicate your vision for how you can make a project happen and expect a promotion to arrive before the New Year. Romance can wait; you have a status ladder to climb.

Aquarius January 20 – February 18

The problems with popularity will arise when Mercury's visit to Sagittarius cramps your casual rapport with some friends. A newfound formality will seem tense and unnecessary, and yet, despite your protestations, you will end up mastering it. Get ready for the tea party circuit and explanations about which fork to use for one's salad. A likely encounter could involve a wealthy single guy.

Pisces February 19 – March 20

The exception to the rule is your starting point. You will always stand out, and almost always on your own terms, but when Mercury is moving though Sagittarius, expect to be even more visible than ever. You may as well get that drastic fashion statement makeover, as you are going to be the person everyone sees walking across the room anyways.
